New pictures have emerged of a special headphone adaptor for Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 7, backing up rumours that Apple will bundle the accessory with its new smartphone.
The dongle will allow users to plug headphones with a standard 3.5mm jack into the smartphone’s Lightning charging port. It is increasingly clear that the iPhone 7 will not feature a regular headphone port, as Apple looks to slim down its bestselling product and make it fully waterproof.
Reports earlier in the summer had suggested that Apple would include a pair of its EarPods headphones with a Lightning connection in the iPhone 7’s box. Now though, it seems that it could offer this dongle instead, in a move to placate users who’ve spent heavily on their party headphones.
This latest leak is said to come directly from one of Foxconn’s factories in China. Foxconn is Apple’s key manufacturing partners and is already said to be producing the iPhone 7 ahead of its launch in September.
Apple’s new iPhone range is reportedly due to go on sale on September 9th. Official confirmation of Apple’s launch plans is likely to be revealed at the end of August.
